Peach Necklace (Momotaro series)2013
Peach halves lathed from a broken table into small bowls, hand dyed & printed, cup handmade beech beads. The necklace is fringed with 2d representations of the same charactors, plaited into the bespoke silk cord showing the journey downriver. Research into play in design led me to decide the materials, joins & colour for this necklace using a dice game. An individual piece in a series of 3, I like to display them as carnival & costume, contextualized by a mural of the Japanese folktale Momotaro.
